Puppies Are Rock Stars May/June Semester

Puppy training early and often is important for a number of reasons. It builds awareness of owner relevance and guidance for a puppy, it teaches early manners and behaviors that make life with and for that puppy a lot easier, and it starts the process of creating a life-long student who loves learning.

In our Puppies Are Rock Stars course, the focus is broader than a basic manners/obedience class because of the short window of opportunity for exposure to new things, dogs, people, etc. -- in other words the primary socialization period.

The purpose of this course is problem prevention, managed exposure, and safe socialization, as well as introduction to basic skills and development of the connection between the student and the puppy.

We will use an open enrollment concept as our standard for this course. This means the total number of skills and concepts are the same as the traditional class, except all the parts of each skill are taught in a single class. For example, all the steps for cueing a sit and holding the sit position are addressed in one class.

AKC Star Puppy skills are included in this course, offering owners a chance to gain their first AKC certificate for their puppy. For additional information: https://www.akc.org/products-services/training-programs/canine-good-citizen/akc-star-puppy/
